1. Blue Hartley slim-fit jacket & Bryder suit trousers – £370 & £170, Hugo Boss at Mr Porter

An “unstructured suit” – with minimal lining and shoulder padding – is just the thing for a summer wedding, as the style is lightweight but still smart. This extra-sharp Hugo Boss version is a perfect example. It’s made from virgin wool, so probably a bit much for a beach wedding somewhere scorching, but it would certainly be a match for a typical British summer.

Reiss is a high street hero when it comes to men’s tailoring, as this Italian-inflected suit shows. It’s made from lightweight crepe, and the stone colour feels fresh without tipping over into bright-white Man From Del Monte territory.
